APM NEIS - My Nook transcript

Patrick: NEIS has been a great guardian angel for us and for our business.

Olivia: Hi, I'm Olivia.

Patrick: Hi, I'm Patrick.

Olivia: And we're the founders of My Nook, a children's play sofa brand established in Australia last year. So, I did a lot of research when Patrick was made redundant. I looked at what... Obviously, we're a family of five, and how were we going to be able to get some level of security was in my forefront. And then what did we... What sort of support was there out there that could help us to make a business a success? I think I would definitely recommend the NEIS program to anyone looking at starting a small business. And for us working, through a NEIS with APM gave us the structure and the security that we needed to be able to really build a successful business.

Isaac: For them, definitely everything has changed. There's more freedom. They can have flexibility. They're their own boss. They can spend time with their family.
Olivia: In the early stages of the program, I was really a bit lost. And I think we both felt that there was so much detail that was required that it was quite overwhelming. And I think that's where APM and specifically dealing with Isaac, he was really able to guide us on the areas of our business that were the most important for us to drill down into. And I think that guidance was really helpful.

Isaac: So, seeing Olivia and Patrick whose business thrive and do so well, makes me feel very, very proud that they're part of the NEIS.

Patrick: I think it is really important to go for it as well. Don't be scared. It can be fright frightening at times, but I think it's really important. And that's, I guess, what NEIS does is it takes away that fright a little bit of that overwhelming preparation. But just go for it.
